I think they have enough insulation!

Looks like a good unit though, round evap head, simple mounting method. Should be a winner.

It about time! I've been waiting for thet thing to come out forever!!! I didn't see a price point listed in that article, any clue as to what OCZ is looking to sell it for? I seem to remember reading about them wanting a sub-$300 price tag, but I think that's just a pipe-dream.

Budget Sub-zero Conroe rigs, anyone?

omg.. me wants.....
sdumper is getting 4.2 out of his 6700 with phase. Those are bound to be pretty expensive, I wonder if Ocz will try to compete price wise or not. Some people will want it just because Ocz makes it. I cant wiat until someone else buys one.....lol. I just dumped my piggybank into my rig, my wife will crucify me if I get something else.

I think they said $350 and then lower it to around $200 once sales pick up. Here is a quick glimpse of possible temps. http://www.bleedinedge.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17821 They don't look amazing at all, I guess you get what you pay for.

Compared to what? I had about $300 wrapped up in my H2O system, and the best any w/c setup (short of running a slush box or pelt, which would drive teh cost to better than double a normal w/c system) can do is ambient. If they manage to hit their price point of between $299 to $350, it will EASILY be the best bang for the buck in CPU cooling, bar none.

If you're comparing it to a Chilly1, VapoChill, or a Mach II, then yeah, the temps aren't quite as impressive, but you're comparing units that cost three times what the OCZ box does. If OCZ can pull this off, it'll be nothing less than a revolutionary development for the overclocking enthusiast sector. Sub Zero temps won't just be for the 1337 few than can swing a few grand for a killer cooler.

Best bang for the buck? I doubt that. Take a waterchiller/slush box

100 for the A/C unit
50 for the pump
30 for the waterblock
25 for the tubing
15 for the waterwetter/de-icer
10 for the bay
------------------------------
230 bux.

That was the cost of my waterchiller/slush box setup. -28.5c Idle on my 920 presler @ 4.75GHz. Cheaper than spending the 300-350 that it costs for the OCZ, that comes with a wimpy 1/6hp compressor. Yes it's nice to see companies comming into the phase world, but don't overprice your stuff. 250> should be the price for it, not 300+

btw, they would never need that much insulation on their motherboard.

Whys the compressor so small? I didnt see any benchmarks but the size of the compressor is a little discouraging. r402a or r507 coolant still wont compensate for a small compressor but need to see some benchmarks to be sure. That said it is still going for 749.00? Thats a pretty good deal.
